The cause of acute kidney injury during pregnancy and in the postpartum period can be particularly challenging to diagnose, especially when it is necessary to differentiate among preeclampsia; eclampsia; hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome; and thrombotic microangiopathies (TMAs). All these disease entities can present with kidney failure, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, and thrombocytopenia. We present a teaching case of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome in the postpartum period in a young woman who was found to have mutations of uncertain clinical significance in the complement cascade, including in C3, CFH, and CFI...

Regulation of intestinal iron absorption is crucial to maintain body iron levels because humans have no regulated iron-excretory system. Elucidating molecular events that mediate intestinal iron transport is thus important for the development of therapeutic approaches to modify iron absorption in pathological states. The process of iron uptake into duodenal enterocytes is relatively well understood, but less is known about the functional coupling between the iron exporter ferroportin 1 and the basolateral membrane iron oxidase hephaestin (Heph)...

BACKGROUND: Structural or functional defects in the placenta, are the primary cause of growth restriction of the fetus. Morphological examination of such placentas from intrauterine growth restricted (IUGR) fetuses often appears deceptively normal. Evaluation of angiogenesis and fetoplacental vasculature is critical to understand the underlying pathogenesis of fetal growth restriction in both idiopathic as well as cases where it is thought to be secondary to complications like preeclampsia (PE)...

BACKGROUND: Anemia is defined as a condition in which there is less than the normal hemoglobin (Hb) level in the body. During pregnancy; iron deficiency is associated with multiple adverse outcomes for both mother and infant. Most of the studies conducted in Ethiopia on anemia during pregnancy were conducted at institution level and associated factors are not well studied and documented. Independent factors like, food security status, dietary diversity and intestinal parasites infection were considered by only a few of them...

REVIEW
Christian Breymann, Michael Auerbach
Iron deficiency is the commonest cause of anemia during pregnancy; however, its prevalence is highly determined by nutritional and socioeconomic status. Oral iron is the frontline therapy, but is often poorly tolerated. Awareness of the available intravenous formulations is essential for management. Before delivery, risk factors such as multiparity and heavy uterine bleeding increase the prevalence of iron deficiency and should be motivation for early diagnosis and treatment. Neonates born with iron deficiency have a statistically significant increment in both cognitive and behavioral abnormalities that persist after repletion, highlighting the need for heightened awareness of the diagnosis...

REVIEW
Patsy M Brannon, Christine L Taylor
Iron is particularly important in pregnancy and infancy to meet the high demands for hematopoiesis, growth and development. Much attention has been given to conditions of iron deficiency (ID) and iron deficient anemia (IDA) because of the high global prevalence estimated in these vulnerable life stages. Emerging and preliminary evidence demonstrates, however, a U-shaped risk at both low and high iron status for birth and infant adverse health outcomes including growth, preterm birth, gestational diabetes, gastrointestinal health, and neurodegenerative diseases during aging...

BACKGROUND: Iron deficiency is the most abundant nutritional deficiency in the world and is discussed to be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. The objective of this review was to perform an umbrella summary of meta-analyses to evaluate the effects and associations of iron supplementation or iron status on maternal and birth/neonatal outcomes. METHODS: A literature search was conducted on PubMed and Scopus by two reviewers without temporal restriction. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses of studies evaluating (1) the effects of multimicronutrient compared to iron + folic acid supplementations on maternal and birth/neonatal outcomes (2), the association of dietary iron intake or hemoglobin or ferritin status regarding the risk for maternal (gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM)) and birth/neonatal outcomes, and (3) the effects of iron supplementation on pregnancy and birth/neonatal outcomes, were included in this review...
